260,000 miles. Still running

Well since there's hardly never anything good on the web about the amazing 6.0l. i figured i would post that im running 260,000 miles and still running great. although i've only had it for a thousand miles lol, I'm a ford diesel tech and work on them all day long so thats the reason i felt comfortable buying. i've been running her hard with straight pipe exhaust and a tune but im gonna calm down on her. lol hopefully. It has no blow by at all and seems to be well maintained. o since i dont have a sig. its a 2006 ford f250 4x4 6.0l.
